The suspects were both taken to an east London police station where they remain in custody.

A Scotland Yard spokesperson said: “A man aged 25 was found suffering from a stab wound. Officers immediately provided first aid.

“The victim was pronounced dead at the scene at 10.07pm.

“His next-of-kin have been informed. A post-mortem examination will be held in due course – enquiries continue.”
